Foreign Affairs on India

Filed under: Basic Questions — Reuben Abraham @ 7:54 am

Foreign Affairs, the in-house magazine of the influential Council on Foreign Relations, is carrying a special — The Rise of India — in its current issue. The lead piece is by Gurcharan Das on the India Model, followed by a terrific piece on India and the Balance of Power by C. Raja Mohan (preview only). The other two articles are by Ashton Carter on the U.S.-India strategic partnership and by Sumit Ganguly on whether Kashmir will derail India’s rise (preview only). I would strongly recommend anyone with an interest in India take an hour or two to read this special edition of FA.

PS: I presume most of you already know that Time is carrying a special section on India as well. Absolute fluff when compared with the Foreign Affairs essays.

Full Disclosure: I was part of the CFR for two years, researching some India-related issues.

  2. I will buy this Time Magzine and read the entire story. I read about this Time’s story on immigrationvoice forum.

    The increased attention of foreign media in Indian affairs and soothing articles like “Rising India” are just one of the several ways to increase their circulation and few more hits to their website.
